The 75min trip was awesome, it really worth its price. William, our skipper was very good and took very good photos and was very funny. I only can suggest to choose this trip!

We had a thrilling ride with Asela our skipper around Dubai Bay. Learned plenty about the skyline and hotels and palaces of note and even saw a Sheik! A great way to see Dubai, highly recommended.

we had stayed near Dubai Marina before, and love its easy access now by metro, to other parts with things to do. However, discovering the Yellow Boats, which we could not miss from our appartment balcony, was such a great find. We had done the shopping, eating and wandering on the Beach! Sailing is a bit slow for us, so... More

Trip around Dubai Marina and The Palm lagoon in yellow boat. Regrettably too much wind for the full tour, but we did see Dubai Marina from a different side. Cheerful and pleasant staff

This was so much fun. We chose the front seat, to get the best views and experience more of the thrill and we got it!! Got soaked also, it was hilarious and so not what we expected. Sort of thought this was just a nice sight see cruise so it was a nice surprise. The boat does stop for pictures... More

Kevin is a fantastic tour guide! Very knowledgable, entertaining, and an awesome boat driver. I booked the tour which included the marina skyline, Atlantis at the Palm, and the Burj Al Arab (90 minutes I believe). Great photo opportunities, and a lot of time to ask questions. The boats are along the marina walk right near Spinneys market and Reem... More

This is a nice departure from Dubai's other established activities. A bit nerve wrecking when the boat starts to pick up speed in the open sea but definitely fun and worth it (use the Entertainer vouchers!). There were other boats in the area, some looked privately owned with Arabic music blasting which was a nice soundtrack to cruising the blue... More

Whilst we had a little trepidation about sea sickness there was nothing to worry about. William (Will-i-am) was a great guy and if we wanted to go slower we needed to just raise our arm. But there was none of that. We were flying along at 40mph! He stopped at the popular locations and took photos of us with Atlantis... More
